Your State Parks and the Holiday Season

It’s no secret that Arizona’s weather during the next several months is going to be fantastic! It’s cooling off in the desert parks and hiking season has hit full stride. Wintering birds have returned to enjoy the relatively mild season and offer patrons a chance to see the winged beauty of these seasonal visitors. During this season, anglers shift their focus from bass and catfish to delicious trout at Dead Horse Ranch, Patagonia Lake, and Roper Lake state parks as the Arizona Game and Fish department loads these destinations with plenty of rainbows to go around.

Parks have begun to cool off considerably throughout the state, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the blustery high country from the comfort of a heated cabin rental. Eight parks throughout Arizona have comfortable cabins situated near lakes, near trails, and amid the beauty of your Arizona State Parks. Cabins sleep up to six people and come equipped with a fire ring, a grill, and outside seating in addition to the fully functional interior.

Take advantage of Arizona's gorgeous fall and winter by spending it outdoors in unique venues!
